Poor man's vacuum oven

Complete with a little bit of bubble splatter. The cup is a ptfe beaker 200ml. I was worried it might move around and didn’t want it setting directly on the bottom of the chamber hence the aluminum foil.

If it works, I’m all for it

My first one was a Pyrex dish with a shiiittty ball valve drilled into it and weather strip to seal the edges then I would set it in warm water in my sink attached to a 1cfm pump. I think you are going in the right direction.


Well it isn’t quite as easy as I expected to get it out of the ptfe beaker, but probably easier than scraping the bottom of the reaction chamber. I guess either way I will have to use alcohol to get the last bit out :slight_smile: It does make it harder to see what’s going on when you are across the room. My buddy told me I should have a web cam set up so I can check on it…
